Retired pro soccer player Robbie Rogers discusses being gay in professional sports

Professional soccer player Robbie Rogers sat down with ABC News correspondent Amy Robach to discuss being gay in professional sports. The interview will air on ABC News’ “Nightline” Monday evening, April 15.

A former member of the U.S. National team and professional player in England, Rogers allowed “Nightline” to travel with him as he saw his family for the first time since coming out earlier this year. Although Rogers has retired, a return to the field in the U.S. would make him the only openly gay player in any major league sport.
